We already knew that Microsoft had plans to bring the application programming interface (API) that next-gen Xbox consoles use to speed up how they load games to Windows. However, XDA Developers notes that it was unclear if support would be available outside of Windows 11. Now, the launch of the first developer preview for that API on Windows also has revealed that Windows 10 will offer its own version of support for the tech.

The API is essentially the backbone of the Xbox Series X’s Xbox Velocity Architecture, which is used to increase loading times on games and other applications. Basically, it allows your system to read the data from the games much quicker, which lets the game run faster.
